The location of this hotel is exceptional for it's proximity to Sandy Bay shops, Salamanca and the city. The staff are helpful and checkin was very easy, however the rooms are very dated. I stayed in a twin share room (queen bed and single bed), the bed itself was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was missing tiles in the shower,... More

Nice size room. Short walking distance to Salamanca. Great view from Balcony of Hobart Harbour and Wrest Point Casino. Has on site Laundry. Only down side is parking is limited to first in best served. So would be hard when fully booked. Very happy and would stay here again

We had the room/apartment with the best view and undercover parking though you do have to climb 4 flights to get there. It did have a great bed and clean sheets/towels etc. For the price and location it was OK as long as you know what you are going into. If anything needed fixing or replacing it was done. As... More

We were given a room with the best view and I have to say that was the best part about this place - the view and location. It was cold, wet and horrible weather when we arrived and we had to carry our luggage up 4 flights of wet slippery stairs to the top. The facilities were very basic and... More

Could do with a major revamp as it is in a great location but old, dirty and dated, carpet filthy and curling up at the edges. Clean towels and sheets but think its a bit cheeky to say if you don't wash your dishes you will be charged a $20 cleaning fee. Limited parking, first in first served. Have stayed... More

We hired a multi room self-contained apartment. It was, to put it lightly, disgusting. The only saving grace was the sheets were clean, but the carpets were filthy, the kitchen was dirty, the bathroom was falling apart and covered in mould, the apartment was freezing with severely inadequate heating, and the beds were uncomfortable. Don't stay here. It's terrible.

Stay at Blue Hills after booking a room sit unseen, bad move. My room was cold, they could have put my heater on as I had booked my room hours earlier. Had to wear my beanie for a few hours until the chill was off the room. I was greeted by a bad smell, it was something between loo cleaner... More

When we arrived at the hotel, we immediately noticed it was very outdated, which usually wouldn't bother me so much, however, we get taken to our room and we firstly discover we have no towels. I then noticed a couple of ants in the room. I didn't worry about it and we went out to lunch and came back to... More
